I personally schlepped my computer, gently, by car. Nothing out of the ordinary happened.
I set up my computer at the new location and now noticed a couple of strange things going on:
1. Normally when I would power on my computer, the a blue light behind the power switch would immediately turn on, the hard drive would start spinning and Windows would start up. Now... I press the power button and there is a short delay (ranging from 3 seconds and up to 10 seconds sometimes!) before the blue light lights up, the hard drive goes into motion and Windows boots. The delay time is not consistent.
2. A very high pitched sound seems to be coming out of my CRT monitor. It's an old monitor (about 6-7 years old), but had no problems till now. The sound seems to intensify with relation to the amount of white showing on the screen. The whiter the screen - the stronger the sound. When the screen is displaying relatively dark colors (windows xp desktop image with the grassy hills and blue skies for example) the sound goes away.
I have no clue if these two problems are connected or not, but they started happening upon starting up my computer for the first time at my new address.
The computer (other than the screen) is fairly new. About 1 year old, maybe a bit more.
